Recent legislation approved by MPs

Slovak legislators closed the 16th session of the current parliament on April 6. During 10 discussion days they agreed, among other things, to hold a public vote to select the next general prosecutor and to reduce the salaries of mayors of towns and villages, as well as adopting a revision to the University Act introducing obligatory tuition fees for all part-time students as of the next academic year, the TASR newswire wrote. Parliament dealt with two drafts in fast-track proceedings. The first amended the Act on Electronic Communications, introducing fees for extension of mobile operators’ licences; and the second – through which the government responded to the financial situation at the biggest, state-owned health insurer, Všeobecná Zdravotná Poisťovňa – postponed the application of tighter regulations regarding the liquidity of health insurers until the second half of 2012. The next parliamentary session will start on May 17.
